About the Author

Jacob Lauterbach (1873-1942) was born in Galicia, studied in Germany, and received rabbinical ordination. In 1903 he immigrated to America and later became professor of Talmud at the Hebrew Union College. A prolific author, his greatest work is considered to be his edition of the Mekhilta, originally published in 1933.

David Stern is Ruth Meltzer Professor of Classical Hebrew Literature at the University of Pennsylvania, and director of its Jewish Studies Program. He is also a member of the university’s Department of Religious Studies and Program in Comparative Literature.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very fine book of Rabbinic commentary and story on Exodus 12-35. The student interested in rabbinic literature and its usefulness to NT studies should enjoy this work. With both a Hebrew/Aramaic text and an English text, the learner can avail themselves of either or both sides of the page. This can be used as a commentary supplement or just to sit down and read a few pages for enjoyment. Some knowledge of Jewish concepts is helpful but not critical to its usefulness.
